Returning favor, USC truck arrives in BR with supplies
BATON ROUGE – The University of South Carolina equipment semi arrived overnight, hauling a truck-load of supplies for flood victims.
The Gamecocks were forced to evacuate South Carolina last season for Baton Rouge when flooding swallowed the university in Columbia, South Carolina, in October 2015.
“LSU was so gracious to assist us in our time of need,” USC President Harris Pastides said. “Now it is our turn to help our SEC friends.”
South Carolina fans have been donating supplies – including water, food and cleaning supplies – all week. USC asked for diapers, baby formula, canned foods, packaged foods, snacks, cereal, towels, socks and underwear. The request was delivered.
LSU tweeted pictures Saturday of the truck being unloaded at a Salvation Army victim distribution center at Cortana.
